Andy Andrews was a big deal back in the 1950s – if he would have ever seen print. Now Archie Comics is bringing the unpublished comic “Iron Curtain Caper” to the world at

Archie Comics alum and writer Tom DeFalco and Editor-in-Chief Victor Gorelick knew of the unpublished Golden Age, Pre-1957 Archie pages featuring a character named Andy Andrews, and in a discussion about him Tom became so inspired that he spent all night creating a new story about Andy! The next day, Tom passionately pitched the concept to Gorelick, who immediately approved the story. It is a tale of bravery, mystery, excitement, laughter and spies. It is the adventure of “The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E.”!

“Bringing back ‘The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E.’ is a great vehicle for introducing Andy Andrews into the world of Archie,” said Archie Comics Editor-in-Chief, Victor Gorelick. “It fits the action/adventure theme of Andy’s unpublished comic right into Archie and the gang’s antics!”

You can read the comic for free at the website.
